How far along are you? 32 weeks and 5 days (this post was scheduled to go out this past Monday!!)
How big is baby? This week Baby weighs as much as a bunch of celery. On average around 42.4cms long and weighing just over 1.7kg. Baby is gaining weigh fast putting on more than half her birth weight between now and when she’s born.
Body and changes:
– Weight gain Heavier and waddling a lot more.
– Stretch marks Still the same stretch marks as last week and still rubbing moisturiser on my belly in the mornings and oil in the evenings.
– Sleep has been better this week than last and I’m loving that Mr D is also sleeping in til 9am or a little past that on the weekends! Best toddler ever!
– Maternity clothes Haven’t bought any new clothes, just one of those black belly bands from Target that you wear around your waist to help extend the wear of your pants that you can no longer zip up! I had one when I was pregnant with Mr D but couldn’t find it. It’s so handy!
The Other Stuff:
Relfux, the pregnancy waddle, baby brain and weight gain are just some of the things I’m continuing to experience this week. My bag is filled with Gaviscon, panty liners, deodorant and snacks…hahah!
Eating lots of homemade cinnamon scrolls this week and party food with a few birthdays during the week (we have a big family with over 22 cousins!).
Feeling really out of breath again this week after walking only three flights of stairs…
Needing a nice hot tea or glass of hot water with lemon after dinner to soothe my full tummy and feel more relaxed.
Wanting to plant more veggies in the backyard.
Watching Friends and also had a date night with the hubby where we watched Mission Impossible 🙂
Bookmarking Father’s Day pressies.
Noticing the beautiful pink flowers blooming along the street leading up to the train station. Such a pretty sight each morning 🙂
Enjoying some relaxing time with the hubby after his constant work trips to Sydney. Mr D loves when he comes home with a new book for him to read during bedtime!
Enjoying the simple things like a delivery of non-alcoholic drinks from Maggie Beer, a strawberry and Golden Gaytime flavored cupcakes and picnics in the park across the road with Mr D.
Daddy: What are you grateful for today Daniel?
Daniel: Thanks to God for Mummy’s arms and for Mummy and Daddy working so we can go on the plane again. LOL!
Have you been continuing to practice gratitude in the past week? What have you been grateful for?
